2014 was a miraculous vintage – a dreary summer, breathtakingly saved by a warm August, September and October.  The wine draws you in with its freshness, concentration, dynamic and generous fruitiness.  It has smooth tannins, beautiful balance and a silky texture.  The grapes are from old vines and so produces a wine with intense flavour and concentration.  With a slightly floral bouquet, the 2014 Lafon Rochet is packed with raspberry and crushed strawberry fruit aromas and a delicate touch of rose petal.  The palate has a welcome pinch of white pepper and notes of cedar, leading to a complex cherry fruit finish.  It is more forward-drinking than other Saint-Estephe wines, but it will age gracefully over the next decade.
